Raging Waterfall...

Normally this type of shot would require a tripod.  By adjusting the shutter speed, the camera can turn the rushing water into a smooth flow.  Any movement of the camera when the lens is open ends in a blurry image and worthless picture.  Shooting on the fly, I didn't have a tripod, so I was forced to improvise.  By placing the camera between a couple of large rocks, I did my best to hold steady for the "artisic shot."  Looking at it now, I am pretty impressed with the turnout.  This is my first attempt at the smooth look to flowing water, so I guess I can cross that off my list of pictures to gather.  Hope you like it!
